Tint...Paint?

Hey norcal people, does anyone know where i can get my car tinted for pretty cheap/good quality? I also want to buy some paint so i can paint my trim pieces (body color). Just wondering if you guys know local places around here that might be more "budget friendly". I live in santa cruz county. Thanks in advance!

Haha! I saw that too. Called a guy, said he'd get me a pint of matched paint and then put in cans for about 50 bucks (equivalent of 4 spray cans of paint). I'll probably be getting it tomorrow.

thats about right for the price of four cans. and the match will be so much better than any can out of a store. you will have enough paint to do the interior pannels as well.
